2020 Traveler’s Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States Now Available

posted on February 20, 2020

When traveling throughout the country, you will encounter a number of differing firearms laws depending on what states you pass through. While it’s practically impossible to remember the numerous and constantly changing firearms laws for each state, it’s not impossible to have a concise and accurate summary with you.

The Traveler’s Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States by J. Scott Kappas is a must-have for any Second Amendment-supporting traveler. Each page is filled with important and useful information on state firearms laws, ranging from vehicle regulations to policies for differing types of firearms and, of course, a 1-100 ranking between “Total prohibition” (1) and “Total freedom” (100) for each state.

It features over 100 changes from last year’s edition, including online updates for conditional reciprocity states, new subheadings in each state’s traveler’s checklist, new page formatting and more. The book also includes contact information for each state’s agency as well as a brief guide for traveling to our neighboring countries of Canada and Mexico.

With more than one million copies sold since it’s first edition over two decades ago, this book costs only $14.95. Readers can find more information at gunlawguide.com.
